California pizza chain to open first Sacramento eatery

Southern California-based franchise pizza restaurant chain PizzaRev plans to open its first Sacramento eatery in mid-October.

Local franchisee Harvind Uppal plans to hire more than 30 workers for the site at 5801 Folsom Blvd.

Uppal also noted that he plans to open four more PizzaRev restaurants in the Sacramento market.

The chain features build-your-own pizzas with artisanal or organic ingredients, plus 14 different spices and sauces. Pizzas are cooked in a stone-hearth oven, with an interior temperature of 900 degrees.

The franchise company currently operates 45 restaurants – 25 of them in California, according to its website – with more than 200 additional franchises under development in 17 states, Washington, D.C., and Mexico. PizzaRev was founded in 2012.
